This recording of the complete string chamber music celebrates the centenary of Lilburn's birth and include the 1st recording of the Phantasy for String Quartet.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
Douglas Lilburn (1915-2001) grew up in New Zealand's North Island. His music has a beautiful outdoor sound, basically romantic in idiom but not deaf to modern touches and techniques. New Zealand forces have recorded several programs of his music, but this is the first I have seen of his chamber music. Lilburn appears here to be more concerned with harmony and counterpoint than with memorable melodies. This music gives a thoughtful, low-keyed effect, very listenable. The New Zealand players are a lovely group with sensitivity and warmth of tone. The recording is beautifully balanced and natural in sound.
